es1

Post by mattrobertson » Tue Aug 17, 2010 12:40 pm

Hi,

I got the es1 today and everything works well! - I have my AnalogueSolutoins modular running over 7 (!) ovtaves, the Monopoly over about 4 and the MS10 over about 3 1/2.

I think (maybe) but tweaking the DC offset I might get more range out of the korgs... not sure... but for now its great. Also a slight tming discrepancy with the MS10 (but not on the other synths) which I havent figured out. Maybe something to do with having to invert the gate sig?.... will look into it

thanks for great software / hardware!

Matt

(Im running latest Logic 9 in 64 bit mode on an 8 core macpro with a 2408 Mkii)

Just in case you missed it, another guy had a similar issue with his Hz/V synths and it seems adjusting the offset fixed it. Apparently they only respond to positive voltages.

hoorah - thanks for that posting... I now have 5 octaves from the MS10 :)

I actually find you can get a better range on the MS-20 by using the VCO freq input rather than the CV input. Should work on the MS-10 too. Note that this is a V/Oct input rather than Hz/V so you will need to calibrate as such. I read about this trick a while ago - it's a complete pain to calibrate by hand (if you want to use a V/Oct sequencer for example) but Silent Way does all that for you :)

The MS series uses an inverted trigger (actually gate) so you need to set it up as 0 for open and 1 for closed.
